Update #18: We Have A Date!
Posted 8 minutes ago
CGF is headed to China on February 28th to check out the final product, and to bring back suitcases full of games for those of you getting advanced shipping. It's really exciting, and a lot of work has gone into making this happen. I'm really excited to be part of it with you. While there, Ed and crew are going to make sure the games get on the boats (one to North America, and one to Europe, with other orders going out from China).

We've just shipped Barons and Pala across the ocean without issue, and they're being assembled and sent out to your favorite game stores already. With this experience, we're feeling good about getting GtR:Black Box moved around the world and onto your gaming table.

We're really excited to share some of the artwork for your bonus game too. Images of Plato 3000 are on BoardGameGeek.com right now , and here are two of them, head over to BGG to see another:




Thanks so much to our artist Steven Bagatzky for the great visuals.

Best,

Jeremiah

YES! We'd love to see your game idea.

What is "advanced shipping"? Was it a kickstart option?

Advanced shipping was an option. Yes. I didn't choose to take it. I feel like the important date isn't the advanced shipping date though. More like, the date the product will actually be given to the masses rather than the 32 people who paid $75.

I must say this relieves me a bit. I was concerned they would send them to America, assemble them and then ship to Europe. That's good news

I hope I can get it sooner because I'm closer

I must say I'm excited. Plato 3000 looks intriguing, I like the "steam-punk" styled artwork. Kind of reminds me of "Howl's Moving Castle" or other great anime films.

Cool! I was thinking of cancelling my preorder with CSI when I heard the dreaded words "Late April". But after finding out semi-definitively that my copy from them will have the advanced card stock, the bonus cards, and a free copy of a game on my PnP list, I've happily reconsidered.

Thanks for the updates!

While I agree, as one of those 32 people I'm glad to know when it's on the way !

Thanks for posting these updates over here. I am paying attention, though I get so much email about the KS campaign, I use the time I do have to try to keep on top of that. I'm here, watching, and can answer questions. Glad I can be part of this Glory to Rome adventure with you guys.

What magic words did you utter to CSI to get all these extras?

Here was a discussion that was had a while back where CSI confirmed in an email that they'd be getting the promo cards.

http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/732210/no-promos-from-coolst...

And in this thread it seems at least fairly definitive from what people have found out that if you preordered from CSI, you'll get a copy of Plato 3000 when it comes in as well.

http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/749093/over-2000-free-copies...

I wouldn't call any of this absolutely 100% set in stone, but I'm confident in it at least enough to keep my preorder.
